Britney Spears and Jason Trawick split, confirmed by Britney’s rep

Jason Trawick and Britney Spears split up

Britney Spears made headlines earlier today when she confirmed reports that she would not be returning for another season of The X-Factor, and now her rep is confirming that she and fiance Jason Trawick have split!

TMZ frist broke the story and Britney rep late issued this statement to People magazine:

“Britney Spears and Jason Trawick have mutually agreed to end their one-year engagement. As two mature adults, they came to the difficult decision to go their separate ways while continuing to remain friends.”

In the statement Britney says, “Jason and I have decided to call off our engagement. I’ll always adore him and we will remain great friends.” And Trawick adds, “As this chapter ends for us a new one begins. I love and cherish her and her boys and we will be close forever.”

Trawick also removed himself as Britney’s co-conservator Friday afternoon. He was added as co-conservator along with Britney’s father and Andrew Wallet in April of 2012.

Britney’s erratic behavior led to a the court’s decision to place her under a conservatorship in February of 2008. Jason Trawick was Britney’s manager and the two started dating in 2009 and became engaged in December 2011.
